    I believe I joined the hidden workshop via invite from another member (whose story I saw there), but don't see how to access it again.

    Do you see me as being signed up, or do I need another invite?

    Hi Matt, i just checked: you appear on the "member"-list of the Hidden Workshop.

    here's how to get there:

    -- go to "You" (top right)
    -- then, in "You", go to "Your Groups"
    -- and then click on "Hidden Workshop" in your group list.

    let me know if you have any difficulties getting in.

    The first story I submitted to Fictionaut (in July 2009) is called "Dumb Luck." I'd like to try a version of it without using its current format of little chapters. Since no one who commented on the story then mentioned disliking the format, I worry a little that I will ruin it if I change it too much. The story as it is runs 20 ms. pp.; removing the sections would shorten it. The word count is 3,870. I'd rather try this in the hidden workshop. Thanks.

    In fact, the story is 24 ms. pp. I just tried to relieve it of its little chapters and photos (from the internet of objects mentioned in the story), and the story crumbled. Not-do. There may be something I can work in the fifth position (what I call the fifth position, the penultimate status point or station) to deepen the sixth position or end. For that, hidden workshop.

    Dortothee--I would like to join this workshop.
    There are pieces I do not feel ready to show entire group.
    They could use criticism and work. I am only beginning to
    write fiction. thank you--Bobbi

    I have a story, 2k words that I've been working on for quite a while. I don't want to make it public but desperately want feedback and suggestions as to appropriate venues.

    I just joined. I'm also very new to Fictionaut and have not yet posted any stories, though intend to soon. I'd appreciate an invitation to the Hidden Workshop.

    Thank you.

    I just joined fictionaut and am running into a complete almost nonresponse on autobiographical/memoir type piece. Someone responded enough today to convince me it's probably not ready for the wider world. My first couple of fiction pieces did OK, but I still think it would be smart to have a place to work on my stuff first before posting. I'm quite sensitive to the sound of crickets. Thanks for considering my case.

    Hi - I have a chapter of my novel that I'm tinkering with as a stand-alone short story, and would like to add it to the Hidden Workshop. I haven't yet posted the chapter - when I receive the invite, can I post the chapter to the Hidden Workshop alone? Thanks! Jennifer

    Is the Hidden Workshop group still active? If so I would like an invite, please. I've got a piece (1,500 words) that has promise but needs a little help.

    Could I get an invite to the hidden workshop? I have a story nobody has yet seen and feedback of whatever kind would be welcome.
